7 make lilies your cof­fee com­pan­ion

The best lilies for pots and con­tain­ers are Asi­at­ics and Ori­en­tals. Keep them well wa­tered and in a sunny po­si­tion for blooms from early to late sum­mer.

Make your lily gar­den burst with more joy by adding other flow­er­ing plants that com­ple­ment each other.

CRO­COS­MIA

Bril­liant red, orange or yel­low wands emerge from long, sword-shaped leaves. Plant corms at the same time as your lily bulbs.

LILAC

A spring-flow­er­ing lilac bush sets the scene for your sum­mer blooms, and has the sweet­est scent that fades as your fra­grant lilies emerge.

SALVIA

Dwarf salvias add vi­brant colour con­trast and, if planted in front of your lilies, will hide the bare lower stems.
